Union Advertising

In reply to the Hon. T.A. FRANKS ().30 November 2022).

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector): The Minister for Infrastructure and Transport has advised:

Any entity proposing to advertise on trams will be considered by the supplier on a case-by-case basis in consultation with the Department for Infrastructure and Transport, where deemed necessary, in accordance with their contract. However, advocacy groups that have a lobbying function would not normally be permitted to advertise on government assets, noting that they have numerous other avenues to advertise, if they so wish.

This approach has been a longstanding practice under both sides of government.
